Today, I am joined by my guest host Paityn to bring you a gross Halloween treat- gummy worms in dirt cups! Gummy worms made from Jell-O, and dirt made from cookies and pudding, is an easy and fun addition to any Halloween party.
If you are a chocolate lover (like me) you are going to DIE for this recipe. When I took this cake to the staff room at school, one of my coworkers said it was the best cake she had ever had. I brought three of these cakes in, and they were gone in a day. That’s gotta be a record somehow! Each layer of the mousse has a unique flavour. The bottom is a light, flourless chocolate cake with a hint of espresso. The espresso brings out the richness of the chocolate, so make sure that you don’t leave it out. The middle is melt in your mouth delicious.
This cake is time consuming, so make sure you have lots of time for each layer to set and/or cool as needed. You want it to be completely set before you cut it, or you won’t have the layers set enough for them to stay standing up. It’s definitely worth the effort, so don’t let the time turn you off.
Making homemade mousse has been on my list of Must Do’s for a while now. I finally bit the bullet, did some research, and holy [email protected] . . . why did I not make this YEARS ago?
This mousse is a rich, chocolatey, decadent dessert. If you have only ever had mousse from a box mix, you MUST try homemade, from scratch. It is so much better.
It’s full on calories, but you won’t regret one bite.
